to important follows at the end. i think one thing you can expect mitt romney is going to come in with a much better prepared attack on libya. he really wanted to go after the obama administration on their handling of that attack last month, but it didn't come out quite right and president obama was able to come out on that and look very presidential. that was a very key moment for the president. now, of course, next week will focus on foreign policy but voters are clearly interested in domestic policy so one important thing, look for how president obama and mistake foreign policy and work in a little domestic policy. that's by bringing up the deficit, the debt, by bringing up china. they'll figure out a way to do it next monday night. >> they are masters at swinging back to the talking points, oh, yeah, that's how it works. all right, karen, thanks a lot. appreciate that, that live report. you have to wonder, we saw 70 million tune in for the first debate and we have 51 for the vice presidential. we'll get the numbers this latest debate i guess sometime in the next 36 hours or so
